Wall clock – dice

Wall clock & ndash; dice

I love home wall watches that are different from those sold in the store. And even more – pure hand-made. Even at one time I made domino clock … Therefore, when I saw a lot of dice, the idea arose to use them by making improvised numbers. But their size was such that it was a stupid idea to fully use it: they were too small, they would not look or read on a large dial, so I postponed the idea until better times.
And when I saw such cubes in machines for 10-ruble coins, capable of giving out jumpers, chewing gum, candies, surprises in tiny boxes in exchange for them, I returned to the forgotten idea again. Jumpers of different colors, made not by balls, but by cubes, in the form of dice – the idea can be interesting. Therefore, I immediately move from words to deeds and go to the balcony to create another homemade product .

First of all, we cut a 12-sided from a sheet of plexiglass. To do this, in one of the holes where the additional handle is screwed in, we turn the screw, tighten it and clamp it in a vice. The impromptu cutting machine is ready.
